Flooding After Torrential Rains Remains Problem in West Alabama

January 14, 2009

Flood waters are still plaguing the west Alabama city of Demopolis following last week’s torrential rainfall.

The Demopolis area and communities in neighboring Greene County have been inundated after the Black Warrior and Tombigee rivers spilled their banks on Sunday.

Some residents said river levels are at their highest since 2001. The city’s last major flood was in 1979.

There is some good news, both waterways have begun receding.

The Black Warrior is expected to fall below flood stage on Wednesday. The Tombigbee is projected to fall by Saturday morning.

There have no reports of injuries.
